UNICEF ensures more of the world’s children are vaccinated, educated and protected than any other organisation. We have done more to influence laws and policies to help protect children than anyone else. We get things done. And we’re not going to stop until the world is a safe place for all our children.
This is a great opportunity to join the UK Committee for UNICEF (UNICEF UK) as Soccer Aid Fundraising Project Manager. The brainwave of Unicef UK ambassador Robbie Williams and Triple S, Soccer Aid for Unicef brings together two teams of celebrities and football legends from England and the World XI for the biggest charity celebrity football match in the calendar, broadcast live on ITV.
As Fundraising Project Manager, you will be responsible for maximising the opportunities for all ‘off-air’ income - leading the development and delivery of our core team fundraising activities (such as the existing Soccer Aid Playground Challenge), looking at new innovations and fundraising opportunities, as well as working closely with fundraising teams across UNICEF UK to support their Soccer Aid activities. You will work across the organisation and externally with partners to ensure efficient collaboration and coordination between project workstreams and oversee successful project management of the campaign, alongside the Senior Project Manager.
To succeed, you will have:
- Experience of engaging teams across an organisation to deliver to one focussed goal.
- Experience of grassroots or community engagement activities and experience of driving income through the public.
- Experience of managing products or initiatives from conception to delivery.
- An understanding of fundamental project management tools and techniques, and experience of applying them.
- Experience in effectively bringing together multiple stakeholders to deliver the required outcome, on time, building excellent working relationships throughout.
- Experience of financial management and budgeting.
Closing date: 5pm, Thursday 27 January 2022.
Interview dates: Monday 7 and Tuesday 8 February 2022 via video conferencing (MS Teams).
We are gradually moving back to our offices on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, East London and we anticipate most colleagues will work one day a week in the office and the rest of the time from home. We are happy to discuss other flexible options to suit your circumstances.
We particularly welcome applications from black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, LGBTQ+ candidates, candidates with disabilities, and from men, because we would like to increase the representation of these groups at this level at Unicef UK. We want to do this because we know greater diversity will lead to even greater results for children.
UNICEF UK promotes equality, diversity and inclusion in our workplace. We make employment decisions by matching business needs with skills and experience of candidates, irrespective of age, disability (including hidden disabilities), gender, gender identity or gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, or sexual orientation.
We are happy to talk about flexible working, personal growth, and to promote a workplace where you can be yourself and achieve success based only on your merit.
The successful candidate will be required to apply for a criminal records check. A criminal record will not necessarily bar you from working with us. This will depend on the nature of the role and the circumstances of your offences.
We only accept online applications as this saves us money, making more funds available for us to help ensure children’s rights.
If you require support in completing the online form or an application form in an alternative format, please contact the Supporter Care Line during office hours.
If you do not hear from us within 14 days of the closing date, please assume your application has been unsuccessful on this occasion. Please note that we only provide feedback to shortlisted candidates.
